Society for Legal Scholars’ Inaugural Baroness Hale Lecture

Please note this event will be in-person only. 

Join us for the Society for Legal Scholars’ Inaugural Baroness Hale Lecture to hear Baroness Brenda Hale in-conversation about her upcoming memoir Spider Woman: A Life

Lady Hale won global attention in finding the 2019 prorogation of Parliament to be unlawful. Yet that dramatic moment was merely the pinnacle of a career throughout which she was hailed as a pioneering reformer.

From her journey from a small Yorkshire village to President of the Supreme Court, hear Lady Hale share the story of her astonishing career during which she smashed glass-ceilings and took as her motto 'women are equal to everything', her landmark rulings in areas including domestic violence, divorce, mental health and equality were her attempt to correct that.

This event will be followed by a book signing (with our friends from Fox Lane Books) where Lady Hale will be signing copies of her new book Spider Woman: A Life - before the book's official release on 7 October. 
 
Please note this event will be in-person only.
